Deck Description

It's time to get down and dirty.

This is a Budget Elder Dragon Highlander deck (BEDH). It is meant for the Elder Dragon Highlander format, a.k.a. Commander. If you are not familiar with the format, I'll link it below for you.

I mostly use MTG Vault for my own private projects nowadays, but feel free to comment or request a deck of your choice. I've loved the Vault so far, and I like that they are still improving on it, as well as I am improving on my English language skills.

So, if you like what you see, consider checking out some of my other budget-y work from the link below.

How to Play

Zalto brings war with him wherever he goes. With this deck, you can bring a whole lot of calamity to any table you enter!

While Zalto is on the field, any ping-effects and smaller boardwipes become more fuel for your dungeoneering adventures! Use this for your benefit while attempting to keep your bigger dudes alive.

If needed, this deck can easily shift from a mass of unfocused board wipes and burn effects into a dangerously focused aggro with cards like Hazoret's Favor, Blood Mist and Temur Battle Rage. Use this for your benefit especially if you are left alone with one another player!

Statistics, pros and cons. Consider reading these, especially if you are a newbie!

Statistics: (out of 5)
- Deck Speed: <><> (How quick the deck is?)
- Creature Focus: <><><> (How much this deck relies on creatures?)
- Card Synergy: <><> (Do the cards of the deck help out each other well?)
- Card Value: <><> (How much card advantage can you get out of your cards?)
- Level of Complexity: <><><> (How hard this deck is to properly play?)
- Fun: <><><><> (How fun this deck is, according to Northy's personal opinion?)

+ You can easily surpirse unwary foes with big bursts of raw damage.
+ Many board wipes = very powerful against decks with multiple small creatures.
+ Zalto can turn the disadvantage of your enemies into advantage on its own! Smaller boardwipes clean the table while pumping you with card value.

- The game becomes considerably harder if Zalto gets killed multiple times in a row.
- This deck may run out of fuel pretty fast if you cannot maintain Zalto alive.
